For the 43 Nintendo published titles, I excluded the ones that Nintendo only published in Europe or Australia but I did count games that were published by Nintendo in Japan but someone else in America (like the Mario & Sonic games, for example).

I also, in an attempt to be fair, eliminated a couple games such as Wii Sports (because it was a pack-in in the US) and Wii Play (because most copies were bundled with a controller). Including them would have bumped up the average factor from 3.9 to 4.1.

The 3 Nintendo published titles that sold better in Japan are: Wii Party, Mario Sports Mix, and Samurai Warriors 3.

Where's my Eagle Scout medal? It's part of a framed awards collage that's hanging on my mom's wall. Or in storage, I'm really not sure.

Jonesing for Last Story, Xenoblade, and Pandora's Tower? Check out Operation Rainfall, a fan campaign that's going to great lengths to convince Nintendo to release those titles in North America.
